Read me first: How to use CyberGhost with native protocols on Windows, Mac OS, Android, and iOS

In case you want (or need) to operate your CyberGhost connection solely with a native protocol such as OpenVPN, PPTP, IPSec or L2TP, the following prerequisites are necessary: 

  • You need a CyberGhost account
  • You need a CyberGhost subscription (the Free Service doesn't include support of native protocols)
  • Depending on the platform and the protocol you want to use you might have to install additional software, sich as OpenVPN
  • You need an IPv4 Internet connection (IPv6 is not supported by CyberGhost)

How to:

  3. Choose the protocol to use and configure it: CyberGhost supports L2TP, IPSec, PPTP, and native OpenVPN.
